As excitement builds for the return of live events, brand new music festival The One in the Woods has announced a stellar line-up of giants from the world of techno and drum & bass.

The One in the Woods will take place from 17 – 18 July at Orrell Hill Wood with three stages and more than 60 DJs across the weekend. The line-up features both international and local artists from the worlds of electronic, techno, drum & bass and house music, including Jeff Mills, Ben Klock, Fabio & Grooverider, Nastia, Sub Focus, Friction, DJ Marky, Bontan, Melé and many more.

The woodland location near Ince Blundell, in between Liverpool and Formby, is more used to hosting weddings than techno parties, but organisers are confident that this unique location will translate into the ideal venue for their 5,000 capacity, two-day gathering.

Jeff Mills aka ‘The Wizard’ is a renowned figure in the Detroit techno scene. A founder of the musical collective Underground Resistance, Mills went on to create his own record label Axis in 1992 and has since expanded into science fiction-inspired electronic music, including a rescoring of Fritz Lang’s film Metropolis. Jeff Mills performs as a DJ all over the world and his flair and technical skills are guaranteed to get the crowds dancing.

Over a 16-year DJ career, Nick Douwma aka Sub Focus has risen through the ranks of underground jungle to become a global dance music superstar. First building a reputation around air-punching, dancefloor dismantling drum & bass, he now draws from all corners of the electronic landscape – epitomising the ‘anything goes’ mantra of today’s scene.

Also joining the line-up is Liverpool based DJ and producer Lauren Lo Sung. Lauren has played at an array of club and festival hotspots like Junction 2, Fabric, Tobacco Dock, Club Der Visionaere, Hi (Ibiza) and The Warehouse Project. Her groove-laden sound sprinkled with Parisian flare has earned her plenty of accolades including ‘One to Watch’ in Mixmag.

Food stalls and other attractions are still to be announced. Weekend tickets cost £65.
